places of worship and pray for help. again, not to dispa raj religion and i believe you guide your life the way you do but this is a lawmaker talking about let's turn to prayer. how do you have a reasonable conversation when someone sees that as the be all, end all solution there? not a rejection of religion but talking about laws here. >> yeah. we are. one of the things you see from this president and this commission that biden had is they're reaching out to faith leaders to have them to be a part of the conversation. >> not telling them to pray. they're saying talk to your people, go to the church and get the laus. you know? >> that's right. but i do think perry's statements, you're from texas. i'm from south carolina. i think it is a reach for some of these folks in these states, red state democrats to figure out how to talk about this legislation. you saw from the president. he didn't say gun control. he talked about gun violence. and they're very much making the point that this isn't about taking people's guns away. it's about reducing gun violence. i do think he'll have to sit dow
group to offset that donation with its own set of books. >> i respect all religions and all faiths, but i want them treated fairly. i think too many times the christian faith is not treated fairly. if they want to have books about the muslim faith, let's have equal books about the christian. i'd rather see the $150 million spent to remodel schools in craven county or build schools at craven community. >> well, there's been no outcry at that school over a lack of christian reading material at the school. on top of that he says he wants the $150 million to go to other projects. here's the thing. that $150 million is the entire budget, not just this project. he's got that all wrong. and if helping communities in need why did he vote against the sandy relief aid? >>> finally now matter how rational president obama is, the extreme end of the pro gun side will always hear something like this courtesy of jimmy kimmel this time. >> why does president obama want to take everybody's guns away? >> everybody's guns are going to be taken away. >> that's right. the federal government is about to
an establishment of religion, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. >> neither slavery nor involuntary servitude shall exist within the united states. >> the validity of the public debt of the united states authorized by law shall not be questioned. >> the right of citizens of the united states to vote shall not be denied on account of race, color or previous condition of servitude. >> the right of the citizens of the united states to vote shall not be denied on account of sex. >> the 18th article of the amendment to the constitution of the amendment is hereby repealed. >> ah, the constitution from those opening lines we the people to the 21st amendment, wahoo! glorious document. i think i heard a clap or two in there about the debt and the nation paying bills and closer and closer to running out of cash to do it. remember, raising the debt ceiling isn't additional spending but allows the government to pay the bills it's already racked up on money it's already spent. today, fitch ratings which sets credit ratings for countries around the world warned the u.s. co
we have a kind of americanized version of prosperity gospel religion in america, and yet micah asked the question how do you worship? do you worship with fatted calves or rivers of oil? you do justice and you love mercy and walk before god not arrogantly. that's micah's answer to the question. jesus puts another one. he says preach the gospel, good news to the poor, heal the brokenhearted, set the captive free. so i thought he was very profound in his prayer today, but i thought president obama back to that again delved deeply into the declaration of independence today much like dr. king did talking about the american promise, the big tent where you are gay or straight or whether you are black or white, whether you are in appalachia or selma, all are in and nobody is out. i thought that was the major thrust of that address today. >> thank you so much for joining us on this special day. and i'm delighted to say that having steamed through various traffic and con investigation, i'm joined by jonathan capehart of the "washington post" and julian epstein, both of whom are special and pre
on if you are a woman, a set of protections on your religion. i don't think many people realize in this country, if you are a transgender woman or a transgender man or gay or lesbian, you can lose your job in many states in this country. >> there's been legislation on it since 1974. it's been discussed in congress. we do not have this. it's something the president can put his weight behind and push for as well. there's something else i want to mention. california passed a law banning ex-gay therapy. it's being challenged, which is unfortunate, it would be nice to see a presidential endorsement. i think you could see expansion across the country. suicide and homelessness. a fourth of homeless people are lgbt. i think we could see movement on that as well. >> it's one of those things we realize the presidential bully pulpit is quite powerful and other times it feels not powerful at all. on this issue, he's moved the ball repeatedly. thank you. up next, remember when some people thought electing barack obama meant america was post racial? yeah. not so much. when we come back.

is looking at all options right now with respect to what type of religions they choose. the -- what type of regulations they choose. i think the polling you showed bears it out. my reporting suggests it's probably the most likely one to be dropped ultimately in the end but they'll probably make some sort of push at the beginning. the key thing is they want to do universal background checks and thinks it's common sensoe refor any who buys a gun should be cleared and generally nra members are in approval of that and don't want nut bags to get guns. and make it's easier for law enforcement officials to track down illegal possession of guns and right now there's not a law to prevent gun trafficking. they want it on the books. they want common sense stuff and reach a little beyond that and let the crazies basically argue it's not smart and then the politics plays out the way they wan want. >> joe, you tweet and i re-tweeted the cover of "the daily news" and it's getting a good conversation. let's talk about the ni "huffington post" series, the road forward. president obama's second term chall
at them. it's our secular religion. that's what this day is. think of what an extraordinary moment it is. a person is a private citizen. they take that oath. they become the most powerful person in the world. they're finished. they go out. they go back out. and they're a private person again. almost no other country in the world is that possible. it's an extraordinary moment. >> i've been disappointed. a lot of people have been disappointed. if you read "the new york times" this weekend, how the president managed the office on a personal basis with members on the hill on both sides. are you hopeful that this president has learned from some of the mistakes of the first term and he's going to reach out more aggressively? even to his own party on the hill. >> well, i think he's a reflective person. he does think he's talked more than most leaders about what he did wrong the first term. that's not usual that these characters admit it and he has. i'm not sure how far he'll get reaching out to republicans. he's tried more than we know. they just didn't come sometimes. the democr
